Change the fucking record. You've gone beyond parody and are now coming over as viciously vindictive and particularly ill informed .

Most of us work at least 37 - count em! - hours a week!

Don’t be jealous, Yomp.

Do you really think that is going to happen? Surely as soon as there is a fatal accident involving a member of the public, the whole thing with collapse into a nightmare of litigation. I cannot see it ever working.

Certainly worse under Corbyn, but he won't be around forever...

Is their any Labour politician who is suitably Blairish for you without actually being Blair? Keir Starmer?

They said the same about the Iron Horse Mike.

It doesn't alter the fact that for capitalism to work it needs enough people with money to buy its products, Henry Ford understood this so despite being a fascist wanker he paid his workers enough to buy the cars they made.

Looks like the current masters of the universe may have forgotten that they need consumers or perhaps they all think they can pay their own workers fuck all, pay no taxes and let others pick up the slack. Parasites is the correct word for people like that. Them and the rent seekers will do more to damage capitalism than Stalin ever managed.

Not at all. If Corbyn had a brain, and employed talented people , rather than ex mistresses and close friends, then he might be of some use. But as he insists on employing possibly the dumbest people available, I cannot ever see him being able to anything. You really could not make up that front bench. There is more political nouse in the front four at Doncaster Rovers.

Miliband, The Younger, should have stayed in post after the outcome of the 2015 general election and faced the music like a person with a backbone .
He also lost his Brother and I sincerely hope for them both , not irretrievably but it's a very sad state of family affairs.

Nope.

I think that the present Cabinet is still in post is because of the shockingly poor judgement of those, like you, that voted for them at the last Election.

I do understand why you want to deflect Michael, I really do. It's a terrible burden for you, so you need to find others 'to blame' for your actions.
